Re: Installing ATI Graphics Driver
Envy is great, but it's 2 driver versions behind right now for ATI. I haven't tried the current ATI driver just released, but the 2 previous drivers have to many problems for me to even consider. The problems ARE related to it's 3D abilities and that seems to be exactly what the OP is concerned about.

Since Envy only includes the 8.6 driver I can't point anyone in that direction.
